Idina Menzel is one of my absolute idols. Her voice is absolutely stunning, and yes there is some general banter but she is very witty and charming and her anecdotes put some of the songs into context and for some of them - "No Day But Today" for example - it gives the songs a whole new emotional context and gives them far more of an impact then the songs on their own :D. It is also lovely to hear Idina in her element and how much fun she is having whilst performing, a moment that sticks in my mind is when her husband Taye Diggs appears on stage and the two perform a duet.
All in all I feel my money was very well spent :D x

The first time I heard / saw Idina was on 'Glee'. Her voice is delightful - and this CD (and the DVD) follow in a similar vein. Her audience interaction reveals a warm and sincere personality. Her voice is wonderful - it has an ever-so-slightly 'rough' edge which gives her a voice its unique and distinct sound. The chosen songs suit her voice and are utterly convincing. Her interpretation of them is superb. I highly recommend her CD. The DVD is wonderful too.

I've listened to the album many times on Spotify, and I can see the point from a previous review here that said the album doesn't have enough singing.

This album is a recording of a stage show, and it does show through. She performs several songs over the show, but the talking is what holds it together.

It truly is for HER fans, not her MUSIC's fans. If you have no investment in her work on Glee, Wicked or RENT, or her relationships with her co-stars, then the album will fall flat for you.

However, I would truly recommend it to Theatrites, RENTheads, Gleeks, Ozians, Idinites and Taydinites.

Please bring tissues for "Jonathan".

I saw Idina Menzel live at the Hackney Empire in London. This was recorded somewhere else but is very similar to the live show I visited. So it is a nice memory (including the dialogue inbetween).

Bought as a present for my wife - she loved it. We're going to see Idina Menzel on tour later this year, so now I know what to expect. If you like musicals and TV like Glee, you'll like this. If not, but you're married to someone who is... you better develop your tolerance levels now!

This is recorded from a live performance and there is alot of Idina talking to the audience between tracks which detracts from the wonderful singing performances. I like to listen to CDs in the car and with the talking it's not suitable for that. Her other albums are better.

It was OK, but I should have bought a pre-recorded CD, as there was too much chatter on this.

Nice addition and fantastic vocals and renditions , but repeated listening is frustration because of the amount of dialogue between songs- how many times can you listen to her stories?
